(NaturalNews) Julia Parker-Dickerson, who serves as the Director of Youth Education Programs with the National Gardening Association, will be a featured speaker at an upcoming, free online event called the "Home Grown Food Summit."

The summit will include dozens of presenters who will provide information about how you can secure your own food freedom.

Parker-Dickerson, who is active with the helpful site, KidsGardening.org (a resource of the National Gardening Association), promotes family gardening activities and seeks to get children involved in growing their own food at an early age.

Additionally, the site provides abundant amounts of information and resources for schools, so they can become involved with students and encourage them to garden.

Striving for healthier communities though more gardening

"Healthy communities begin with access to nutritious food options and opportunities for physical activity," Parker-Dickerson wrote in a recent post. "Community and youth gardens play a key role in supporting healthy lifestyle choices by providing people of all ages to get active by growing food locally."

Her online presentation is titled, "Youth Gardening: Getting the Next Generation Growing," and she will provide information for everyone -- parents, school administrators, teachers and more -- about how gardening early on in life can help reduce obesity in the future.

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 12.7 million children and adolescents and 78.6 million U.S. adults are obese (CDC, 2012)," she writes. "Increased access to healthier food options, including whole fruits and vegetables, can help make a dent in these numbers (especially when people have the opportunity to grow food themselves!)"

Variety of food freedom topics to be discussed during free online summit

In this summit, Parker-Dickerson will be among a group of 30 experts who are well-versed in backyard food production. They're all eager to teach you how to become free of supermarkets and drug stores.

Experts will cover a range of topics such as six ways to keep chickens (and which is best for you), ways to welcome rain into your life, detoxifying your garden and living without refrigeration.

The Home Grown Food Summit will be held April 6-12 and again, is available online for free. An introductory video by Marjory Wildcraft, host of the summit, can be viewed here.
